If you browse through the Ultrasabers product page, you might notice that some of the lightsabers say ‘SE’ or ‘LE’ or ‘CE’ at the end of their name. Let’s walk through the meaning of those terms.
Ultrasabers LE (Limited Edition) lightsaber hilts
Ultrasabers ‘Limited Edition’ lightsabers do not seem to be limited in quantity or availability, but ‘LE’ does still have a meaning. An Ultrasabers ‘LE’ lightsaber will have different color accent marks on the lightsaber’s grip and by the emitter. For example, an Apprentice LE V4 lightsaber is predominantly metallic with some gold colored accents in the grip and emitter area. A standard Apprentice V4 is a solid metallic colored hilt. Dark side hilts function in a similar way. The Dark Sentinel LE V4 is a solid blade hilt with silver accent marks in the grip and emitter area. A standard Dark Sentinel V4 would be solid black everywhere on the hilt.
Ultrasabers SE (Special Edition) lightsaber hilts
‘SE’, or ‘Special Edition’, doesn’t appear to mean anything at all. The term ‘SE’ is attached to some mid-range to high-end lightsaber. Seems like Ultrasabers is only using the term ‘SE’ to make the lightsaber name sound a little cooler and more prestigious. As far as I can tell, there’s nothing special or unique about Special Edition lightsabers.
Ultrasabers CE (Collector’s Edition) lightsaber hilts
Many of the Ultrasabers lightsabers that say ‘CE’ are nickel plated or have the option to be nickel plated. There’s one notable exception. The Mantis CE does not appear to be nickel plated at all so it doesn’t really seem appropriate to use the ‘CE’ designation.
